Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 23, 2012
Single bottle purchased from Kensington Wine Market in Calgary, AB on 03/01/2012. Colour: Black with dark brown healthy head. Nose: Tar, rubber, smoked oysters. Taste: Light sweet, medium bitter, medium sour. Coal leads to sour bitterness with grit in the middle. Late horrendous smoke burn and lingering spice. I loved the spice but couldn’t care less for the smoky dirt welcome.

BlackForestCO (977) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Bottle. Poured a black color with a thick, dense, creamy tan head that slowly receded to a thick fluffy layer while leaving large spots of lacing. Aroma of bakers chocolate, lightly roasted malt, bread (rye?), a soft earthiness, and some dry pepper. Smooth, lightly bitter entry that leads into a moderate roasted maltiness with some hints of light bakers chocolate that leads into a lightly dry earthiness paired with a moderate chalkiness that is overtaken by lightly spicy pepper note that lingers into the finish and becomes a tad overbearing before a light, sweet breadiness peaks through and tries to salvage some of the flavor. Light carbonation and relatively slick mouth feel. Overall, the appearance and aroma are pretty promising, but the lingering, harsh flavor leaves a pretty fair amount to be desired. I am not sure if it’s the peppers that are imparting the chalking, almost medicinal flavors or not, but I am not a fan of that. Bummer.

humlelala (975) - DENMARK - JUL 16, 2011
(on tap @ Café Langebro) Pours pitch black with a rich, toffee head that laces the glass. Aroma of smoke that is gradually complemented by vinous notes as the brew gains room temperature. Taste is very classical porter style with an absence of sweetness and dominance of the dark bitterness of hops and toasted malts. Notes of coffee, dark chocolate and a distinct, gently burning chili aftertaste. Creamy on the palate, full-bodied, softly carbonated and with a long, burning finish. Girlfriend says: "It tickles the tongue in the beginning."

Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - OCT 8, 2012
Pours black with a thick brown head. Very strong aroma of chocolate and roasted malts. Great flavour. chocolate toasted barley and coffee, all slowly melding together into a very smokey cpicy finish. Fastastic.

andrewturba (962) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 6, 2013
Pours an opaque black colour with a couple fingers of light brown head quickly turning into a healthy ring around the glass and spotty. Aromas of chipotle pepper, chocolate. Flavours of chipotle peppers, chocolate, mocha, decent spicy balance.

dfearnley (944) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 3, 2013
Bottle to pint glass. Aroma of chocolate, toasted malt, cereal, straw, and sawdust. Thick black with a creamy brown head. The taste is of smoke, chipotle, and pine. Medium to heavy bodied, creamy and acidic.

SPDickerman (943) - Texas, USA - NOV 12, 2010
UPDATED: APR 8, 2011 Pours dark brown/black with a frothy dark tan head. The aroma is very strong of peppers and might be called a little overbearing. Does not taste like your normal porter. Spiciness is prominent and flavorful while still having those favorable characteristics of a classic porter. Full-bodied and smooth, not too thick, and less than average carbonation. Finishes with a lasting spicy tingle.

ICEatALAMO (928) - Troy, Michigan, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Bottle. The pour is a very dark brown with a lingering head. The aroma is all porter, not much else. The taste is has the taste of peppers as soon as you take a drink. Lingers throughout, but not overly hot just a good spice. Quality beer and nailed what they were trying. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tmrmwel (925) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2012
On tap @ Pingvinen, Bergen. Pours an almost perfect black, with a fingerthick creamy and coloured head. Like a proper stout should. And, …what? Not a stout? But the aroma is nice burned malts, with coffee, chocolate and toffee notes. The body is nicely creamy, with a soft carbonation. And the flavour is sweet with burned malts, coffee, chocolate and… Hmmm, black pepper. And chili. Yes, lots of chili, and it’s getting hotter and hotter throughout the finish. Someone might argue that it’s a bit over the top with all this perppery chili? Well maybe not your average stout, but it sure kicks hard and strong for a 6,6 ABV. Nice one.
